Cooking With Nick Stellino 2

Chef and cookbook author Nick Stellino celebrates his landmark 20th year on public television with the second season of his series, COOKING WITH NICK STELLINO. Season two continues Nick's long-standing practice of sharing delicious recipes inspired by the traditions of his native Italy. He demonstrates easily recreated dishes with the home cook in mind — from savory soups to authentic pasta dinners to delectable desserts — in a step-by-step fashion. Nick's charm, warmth, and humor shine through as he shares tips and techniques learned in his family's kitchen. Thirteen new half-hour episodes emphasize simple, rustic Italian dishes packed with flavor, including Sicilian bread soup, linguine with red clam sauce, veal Saltimbocca, pasta Alla Carbonara, Grandma's polenta, and ossobuco. Nick also puts his stamp on biscuits and gravy, lobster mac and cheese, crab cakes, and other classic American dishes. In 1995, Stellino launched his first series, Cucina Amore, and followed it with five seasons of the APT-distributed series Nick Stellino's Family Kitchen and two seasons of Nick Stellino Cooking With Friends.
